    I would like to know more about Auli, which is in Uttarakhand. I have only recently heard about the destination and from what I know it is not as crowded as other places like Nainital or Mussoorie. When searching the internet, the results come up as Auli being in Himachal Pradesh but from what I know Auli is in Uttarakhand, which is why I am getting information from the forum to get correct answers.

    Here are some important things I would like to know about Auli.

    When is the best time of the year to visit Mussoorie?

    How far is Auli from Delhi?

    If I decide to visit Auli during the winter season and want to ski, will I be able to get ski clothes and equipment on rental there?

    Apart from skiing during winter what other activities are there in Auli?

    What activities can you do during the summer season?

    What are the popular tourist places to visit in Auli?

    Welcome to the forum!

    Here's the answers to your queries:

    When is the best time of the year to visit Mussoorie?
    • Well, Mussoorie is generally good to visit all year round. You just have to avoid these months which is the monsoon season: mid of July to mid of September. If you want to see the Himalayas clearly, consider going in the months of mid-September to November. If you want to experience snow in Mussoorie, consider going during end of December to mid-February.
    How far is Auli from Delhi?
    • It is about 558 kms, so that's 11 hours of driving or more.
    If I decide to visit Auli during the winter season and want to ski, will I be able to get ski clothes and equipment on rental there?
    • Yes, some shops offer some ski equipment for rent here.
    Apart from skiing during winter what other activities are there in Auli?
    • You can try trekking, snowboarding or visiting the temples around Auli.
    What activities can you do during the summer season?
    • You can try camping which lots of families enjoy. You can also visit the meadows and gaze at the lovely views. You can search for Khapal, a rare wild berry, in villages and have a taste of this tasty treat.
    What are the popular tourist places to visit in Auli?

    • There's Gorson Peak, a 4 to 5 km trek which leads you to an amazing peak. But the journey to get there is well memorable too. Gurso Bugyal is another one, perfect to visit during summer season. It boasts of lush greeneries which can surely melt any nature lover's heart. And lastly Chenab Lake, an amazing view awaits you here.
    I hope this helps!
